JANUARY 13 – Durham’s vibrant community garden has just been expanded to include a grape arbor, fruit tree orchard, and education pavilion.  This expansion was funded by Keep Durham Beautiful, Keep America Beautiful, and Lowes Home Improvement.  Volunteers donated over 400 hours of their time to install the arbors, build raised beds, and build an educational pavilion.  Lise Jenkins tells us about this project and talks to some of the volunteers that made it happen.

This has been a busy season at the Briggs Avenue Community Garden. As part of a project funded by a grant from Lowe’s, volunteers from Durham Tech, Keep Durham Beautiful, Lowe’s Heroes, Durham County General Services, Durham County Extension Master Gardeners and the Briggs Avenue Community Gardeners have built a beautiful pavilion, planted a vineyard, and installed raised garden beds. Fantastic work, everyone! Enjoy this slideshow of the pavilion construction.
